A great start to 2017!

Wednesday 18th January 2017

Reflecting on a great 2016 and exciting plans for 2017!

2017 is here and I just can't believe where 2016 went! Time is supposed to slow down as you get older, isn't it? No sign of that happening in my world, but, you know what - I couldn't be happier!  I thrive on the buzz of a busy life, but I am learning to slow down during my off-duty times. This is a new experience for me, but I believe it will enable me to appreciate my down time more, and to focus on my health and wellbeing too.

A whirlwind happened in 2016 as the studio was at its busiest in the 3 years that it has been open. I have been thrilled to see some of my Cherub scheme babies move from newborn to the end of their first year, following their third visit to the studio. Little Ava was one of many who came. Here she is pictured below at each sitting.

2016 saw some really lovely weddings. My team and I so enjoy meeting the Bride and Groom, their families and their friends. Each wedding is unique and I love the detail and care put into each one. As a female wedding photographer capturing the 'bling' and fashion is one of my favourite tasks! Here is a little collage of some memorable moments.

My own personal development has been a focus too in 2016, and will continue through 2017 and beyond. In January I joined a mentoring scheme with world-renowned photographer Damian McGillicuddy, and have been working with him, and others in my group, growing and refining my business management and development. In addition I have been learning new techniques with him for lighting and shoot ideas. I really value what I have learnt there and look forward to acheiving more in 2017.

In October I was able to move a further step forward with the change of premises to 14 Old Market Place in Harleston. This has given me my longed-for shop window onto the street, and the chance to display more work on the studio walls. It is warm and inviting here and client feedback has confirmed they love it here.

Before Christmas the studio was flat out with Family Portrait Experiences, and also a very successful canine portrait offer. Some gorgeous images made their way into Santa's sleigh.  I hope all the recipients loved their framed prints.

So to 2017. What's in store for you, my clients?

Some exciting new additions to my Photography Experience menu will be coming so watch out for more details soon. A bespoke range of frames will soon be available to show off your images. My recently updated skills in lighting will be added to both portrait and wedding services, thus enhancing the wow factor in your pictures.
All in all I believe that you will fall in love with the overall experience of booking with me for either your wedding or a family portrait.

Last week I attended the annual Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers annual conference at the Hilton Metropole in London.This consisted of almost a week of lectures and workshops, trade show, competitions and meeting up with fellow photographers from the UK and abroad. I always come back buzzing from this and it gets me right onto the road to work for 2017. Each year I submit images into competition for appraisal by a panel of five of some of the industry's top judges. This year I was thrilled to acheive a Merit standard award (which scored over 80%) for the image below. Competition is one of the best ways to improve your imagery, and I look forward to submitting more this year.  We also have a glittering awards dinner on the Saturday night!

I will sign off now as serious writer's cramp has set in! I wish you all a (belated) Happy New Year and look forward to creating some cracking imagery for you this year.
